DUBLIN, Ohio – It was hard to read the eyes of Jack Nicklaus behind his sunglasses, and maybe that was a good thing. He was in his customary spot behind the 18th green at Muirfield Village as he waited to see who would win the Memorial.

The Precursor is the name of Fujikura’s prototype shaft that is being tested on Tour for a possible debut later this year or early next. It is rumored to be an evolution of the current leading shaft brand on Tour, the Motore Speeder.

On the LPGA Tour, the winner of the Shoprite LPGA Classic used a Fujikura in her Mizuno MP 15 degree 3 wood and Mizuno JPX 19 degree hybrid. Also, the driving accuracy leader played Fujikura’s NEW Motore Speeder 569.
